Key summer for local 3rd graders
Editorials: School of Hope needs summer tutors

This coming weekend means the start of summer and for some children, who will be entering the third grade next year, this might be the most important summer ever.

Being able to read at third grade level by the end of third grade is a critical indicator of future education success for kids.

That benchmark has been one of the constants of the Schools of Hope program from its inception.

United Way of Dane County and the Madison Metropolitan School District are seeking tutors to work with kids this summer to make sure all children are ready to achieve academically. These one-on-one reading activities have proven successful so we join with United Way and the schools in asking for your help. 

The first training session is June 5th so it’s coming up fast. You can learn more at www.tutor@schoolsofhope.org.

We hope you’ll consider volunteering your time to make a difference.
